What is Beauty and Grooming Science

Beauty and grooming science is about recognizing the essential science behind the beauty and grooming products used every day. P&G Beauty & Grooming scientists deliver meaningful, measurable and noticeable results consistently to the consumer, through their innovation in the lab. Fundamental hair, skin and color science is the foundation of P&G Beauty & Grooming's innovation, which is inspired by a deep understanding of the desires and needs of men and women.

What is beauty and grooming science? To many people the fields of "beauty," "grooming" and "science" may have no apparent connection. But a closer look at the technologies used to develop today's beauty and grooming care products reveals that beauty and grooming science is about illuminating beauty and grooming through the use of cutting edge science. As the beauty and grooming industry strives to meet consumer demand for skin and hair care products that are more than just aesthetically pleasing, beauty and grooming scientists are challenged to apply cutting edge sciences such as genomics, cellular biology and polymer chemistry to create products that help unlock and reveal the inner beauty of women and men.    `

As a global leader in beauty and grooming research, P&G Beauty & Grooming delivers products with noticeable beauty, grooming and health benefits - from hair and skin to cosmetics, fragrances and colorants - to consumers around the globe. Fundamental hair, skin and color science is the foundation of P&G Beauty & Grooming's innovation, which is inspired by a deep understanding of the desires and needs of men and women.

The World of Skin Care

Skin is the outward symbol of who people are or would like to be. But it is more than just a simple cover. It is the largest organ of the body - a complex and dynamic system that is vitally important to health, and sometimes reflects it as well.  

Find out the answer to questions like: what causes dry skin; why does the skin of some adults seem to need little care, while other people spend much of their time and money trying to repair and disguise the effects of the passing years?

The World of Hair

Explore the nature of hair, its care and maintenance, and the cosmetic and medical problems that can affect it. Examine ways in which the individual, the hair care industry, and the hair stylist can work together to create and preserve ''healthy hair."

People all over the world see hair as an important expression of their personalities- to conform, to make a statement, to help them feel good, to attract other people.   Understanding hair from the scientific standpoint helps hair care professionals to predict what will happen to different types of hair under different conditions. It also allows them to understand what can be done with a particular person's hair and what cannot: every experienced stylist and technician knows how important it is not to try to do the impossible with hair that is too thin, too short, the wrong color or just ''difficult.''
